Tax Retainer Service - Flexible Prepaid Tax Advice

Many of the queries that we receive from accountancy practices are quick second opinions on ad hoc tax matters. By availing of Taxkey’s Tax Retainer Service, you can benefit from timely tax advice as and when you need to without the need for further fees or negotiations.

The service: 

  • telephone and email support for ad hoc queries that arise day to day
  • a quick second opinion to provide comfort before delivering the final advice to your client
  • support for audit teams dealing with tax issues that arise during the audit process
  • a short-form written response to your query if required
  • flexibility to purchase the level of tax support you want and use it as you need to
  • Discounted fee rates for “time units” purchased

How it works: 


Units of time are purchased in advance at a discounted rate and are available to use as you need to for ad hoc queries.  Each unit of time represents 30 minutes. The minimum pre-paid purchase is 10 units of time (i.e. 5 hours). Purchases of more than 25 units of time attract further discounts. Essentially you purchase the time required and it is available for you to use as you need to.
We provide a monthly statement of account for all clients availing of our Retainer Service.
Support with Revenue audits
Taxkey can assist you with the management of complex Revenue audits. Our services include:




  • pre-audit inspections and health checks
  • advice on negotiation strategy
  • drafting qualifying disclosures – prompted and unprompted
  • dealing with specific tax issues that are under investigation.

Assistance in dealing with verification checks raised by Revenue is also available.

Tax Health Checks for your clients
The self assessment regime places an onerous burden on businesses to get their taxes right. If you have a client, or a number of clients, who would benefit from a review of their tax affairs, then our tax health check service could be the solution.




Taxkey provides comprehensive reviews addressing a number of tax areas. Alternatively, our service may focus on a review of one or two  specific areas that are tailored to the client’s requirements.

Tax Training Workshops
Taxkey provides cost effective training programmes tailored to meet your needs. Our service is provided to your location and sessions are designed based on your need, keeping in mind the specific tax areas that are relevant to your client base, for example:




  • General corporation tax compliance
  • R&D tax credit
  • VAT on property
  • Employment tax obligations
  • Relevant Contracts Tax requirements
  • Succession planning
